Genesis Turn It On For Free

Apparently taking a cue from Ozzy and Sharon, Genesis have revealed that the final show of the European leg of their Turn It On Again Tour, which kicks off June 11 at the Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Finland, and will hit twelve different countries, will be free.

The free concert will be held July 14 in Rome at Circo Massimo, the ancient Roman hippodrome that was the site of Live 8 in 2005, and is expected to draw more than 400,000 people.

The event will not be ticketed and is free to all who turn up on the day of the show on a first come first served basis.

The band also announced that two shows on the tour have been rescheduled due to logistical problems resulting from the large-scale production for the tour.

A show scheduled for June 19 in Linz, Austria, has been delayed by one day and will now happen on June 19. All tickets for the show will be honored or refunded.

A show originally slated to take place June 20 in Budapest, Hungary, has been relocated to the Czech Republic and will now take place on the same date at Prague’s Strahov Football Stadium. For those able to travel to the show, tickets will be honored, otherwise full refunds will be available.
